Big Aftershock

April 7th, 2011

We just got hit by another big quake. This was a big one. The TV reports say it hit Miyagi, but it was a long and strong quake even here in Tokyo. They’re calling it a “strong 6” in many parts of Tohoku. Like they need that. More in a few moments.

That quake lasted a good minute or more, and really shook the place. I would even say that it was stronger than anything we’ve felt since the day of the quake, or maybe the day after.

TV is reporting a 7.4 magnitude on the Richter scale. Wow.

    Yeah, that aftershock is all over the news here in the States, too.
    They have since downgraded it to a 7.1 (not that 7.1 is insignificant!).
    A minute is definitely long for a quake to continue. Sounds really scary. Fortunately, this time no major tsunami activity is expected.
